Oliver Bull (b: West London, 1970) has painted since childhood. Encouraged by his family – his mother, Anne Bull SWA, was a talented artist – he benefited enormously from exposure to work by their friends Ken Paine, Terence Cuneo and Ken Howard. He studied at Wimbledon School of Art; The Surrey Institute of Art & Design, gaining a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design; and went on to work for 6 years as a designer/concept visualiser.
Currently based in West Cornwall, Oliver paints en plein air and from a studio above the small fishing village of Mousehole.
A painter and surfer for some 30 years, he’s develop a comprehensive feel for the moods and atmosphere of the Atlantic coast. In simple terms, his paintings are an emotional response to the marine environment; ambient impressions of a place he loves!
